We're at the edge of the world!

If you look closely at the Furuno chart plotter low in the photo (Click the image to enlarge it), you'll see we are approaching the end of our Canadian electronic chart and will soon be sailing into the wide blue yonder. Fortunately, we do carry old-fashioned paper charts and, on this cruise, were getting to know the capabilities of the Palm Centro smartphone visible high in the photo. The ActiveCaptain Mobile software we use does include U.S. charts, so we knew where we were at all times with GPS precision.

The instrument between the Centro and the Furuno is our Cetrek autopilot which steers the boat 80 to 90 percent of the time we're cruising.
